4 Yellow Home Decor Tips For Spring 2020
Yellow is vibrant, evokes creativity and perfectly embodies the freshness of spring.
1. Use yellow in a home office to boost creativity
This spring, add pops of yellow in a home office as the happy hue helps boost creativity and positivity. Brighter options like a canary or daffodil yellow lighten the look while imbuing energy and freshness into the work setting. Keep the palette simple with white wooden furniture and neutral accessories – oak brings warmth and balances a bold yellow beautifully.
“As far as an accent color goes, yellow is a vivid choice that isn’t too daring or distracting,” she says. “Layer different tones of yellow for depth and to create a curated look.” A home office is inviting when the ambiance is conducive to fresh air, which can easily be achieved with some plants.
2. Accent a neutral bedroom with an earthy yellow
Draw inspiration from the outdoors by complementing a neutral bedroom with pops of mustard yellow. “The contemporary shade stands out against colors like white, soft grey, and oak while drawing out their warm undertones. Its earthy characteristic evokes warmth to create a cozy feel in the bedroom, while its vibrancy demonstrates the home owner’s confidence in styling their space with a bold color,” says Rebecca.
Maintain clean, clutter-free surfaces and utilize accessories with little to no print for an airy and stress-free environment. “Fresh flowers and scent diffusers by the bedside are lovely, minimal accessories that give a sense of homeliness and relaxation,” she says.
3. Pair yellow with Pantone Classic Blue for an inviting dining space
On the walls, a bright butter yellow goes well with Classic Blue, the 2020 Pantone color of the year, to transform a dining room into an inviting space. “Employ color blocking techniques on opposing walls and entrance features for a modern twist. The bold contrast is playful and welcoming – helpful for inducing casual conversations and great for a family-friendly setting,” advises Rebecca. “This statement combination would benefit from natural daylight streaming in – to make the colors pop and brighten the overall setting.”
As with any interior scheme, achieve color coherence across the room by reflecting the same primary yellow and blue tones through decor pieces. Lighten the palette with white wood floorboards that also act as a grounding element in the colorful scene. Meanwhile, green plants offer respite and a soothing ambiance as a finishing touch.
4. Add yellow to warm up a kid’s bedroom
An energetic hue like pineapple yellow is good for a kids’ bedroom as it sets a fun and educational tone. The gender-neutral color fosters enthusiasm and positivity while adding coziness through texturally rich accessories like a linen throw and cotton pillows. To help with symmetry in a yellow doored bedroom, hang up artwork with pops of a similar yellow.
Keep the remaining furnishing fairly neutral. A cool light grey is the perfect wall color that softens the overall look and balances the warmth of the yellow. As for accessorizing the room, “White wooden furniture is brilliantly versatile. They can be modern or contemporary yet still work in a traditional setting and have the effect of warming up space,” Rebecca says. “Spring is a good time to experiment with yellow in the home; to provide comfort and coziness in the last few chilly days while being perfectly in line for a brighter backdrop come summer.”
